‘The Hangover 2’ Is 100% Happening
Posted by Brian on 06/12/2009
You want more? You got more. Director Todd Phillips confirms that The Hangover 2 is “100% happening.”
The tale goes that Warner Brothers wanted a sequel before filming was complete. “We were thinking of sequel ideas when we were shooting, which sounds cocky, but we were doing it more because it was just fun to talk about ideas while hanging out on the set,” Phillips explained. “Two weeks ago I was saying, ‘let’s see how it works out.’ Now that the movie has really connected, it’s something we’re doing for sure.”
The film could be shoot as soon as Spring 2010 and that all of four original actors are confirmed to return. “I love ‘The Hangover’ so much and I think we could crush it with the sequel. I’ve never had more fun making a movie, ever. Not that ‘Old School’ wasn’t fun, but these guys were so hungry and ready to kick ass everyday. We just all gelled so well on this film.” Count me in. Having not even seen the first one. Todd Phillips is fucking hilarious, so I’m sold.
Phillips also touched on the possibility of an Old School sequel. “‘Old School Dos’ is a harder nut to crack because we’re dealing with such big stars. It’s hard to get those planets to align right now with Will and Vince and Luke.” Phillip’s is quick to be clear that he isn’t place blame on anyway, merely circumstances in getting things to line up. “There is a script for ‘Old School Dos.’ But as of today, I would say the chances of it happening are unlikely.”
Last I heard Vince Vaughn, and certainly Luke Wilson, weren’t doing shit. Ohwell.
